“Innovation, service and quality are hallmarks of competitive advantage required in the food service marketplace, and Lascom already enables its customers to meet the necessities of today’s increasingly complex, regulatory environment,” said Jean Christophe Calmejane, VP of Lascom.
As innovation is a key point for Food Service businesses, the formulation tool provided by Lascom CPG allows elaborating formulas, either from an already-existing product or from scratch. It provides a competitive advantage to Lascom’s customers by considerably reducing time to market.
It also provides full support for cost and nutrition facts calculation, ingredients statement generation, allergens and claims labeling, raw material origins, facilitating R&D daily tasks.
Compliance and quality purposes are also a major issue for Catering and Food Services professionals. As an example, Lascom today announced that a global catering company is now utilizing Lascom CPG solution for ongoing product lifecycle management services.
